You mean when boxers were fighters -

Marvelous is my favorite fighter ever. Dude was chiseled out of granite and freaking devastating with both hands.

I don't disagree, but the three true freshmen all come in pretty highly rated, so that's why I thought it was so strange to hear that JG was worried about the depth at OSU. Once he enrolls, he'll redshirt at either school, then have a shot to start as a RS Freshman competing against a contingent of 4-5 other QBs will several years of eligibility remaining. It's just interesting that depth was cited as his concern regarding OSU.

One of the things that I find interesting about JG going to Tenn, is that QB depth/competition was allegedly a deciding factor. Let's compare:

OSU has Brax (Sr.) and Cardale (Jr.) who will be gone before JG gets to campus, Barrett (So.) who is about 50/50 to leave after 2016 (just my guess), and Collier (Fresh.), Gibson (Fr.), and Burrow (Fr.). So, by the time JG completes his RS season, he'll be looking at competing with two sophomores and a junior (maybe even two Juniors) and a freshman who will probably redshirt (Clark) in 2017.

Tenn has Dobbs (Jr.) who will start 2 more years, Smith (So.) who is pretty irrelevant, and Jennings, Dormady, and Jones, who are all true freshmen in 2015. So, in 2017, he'll be going head to head with the three guys who are freshmen in 2015, as well as any 2017 commitments at the position (They are pursuing several, and will assumably take at least 1).

So, the truth is, he faces the same amount of competition at Tenn and OSU. Unless, I'm missing something, this seems like an erroneous reason for him to decide to attend Tennessee.

There are three very good reasons to be excited about Felder's commitment, no matter the stars -

1. He wants to be a Buckeye, and the Buckeyes want him.

2. He was good enough for Va Tech's defensive backfield, which has a pretty solid pedigree.

3. The Buckeye staff has a pretty damn good track record by now when it comes to evaluation talent.

I certainly do not question whether they know what they're doing. I'm excited to have this kid on board, welcome to the Scarlet and Gray, the best damn team in the land, Kareem!

Sorry, duplicate post. So, enjoy this instead -

Jadeveon who?

The Buckeyes may not have produced a lot of draftees in 2015, but a TON of guys who got their asses kicked by the Buckeyes last year sure got picked.

Nicholas, nice write up. I agree that many people failed to give appropriate context to OSU's draft class. Believe it or not, here on local radio in SEC country, they went on and on how scary it was to think that Oregon and OSU finished 1st and 4th in the total numbers of snaps played by freshmen, as well as the total number of freshmen played.

I see a minimum of 9 players being drafted next year, with a max in the 12 range. I would love to see OSU break their own record of 14 draftees in a single year, and agree that the possibility exists that they break Miami's record. One thing is for sure - Meyer certainly has re-established OSU as an elite program, one of the 2-3 best in the nation on a year in and year out basis. It is a great time to be a Buckeye!

I cannot stand the guy. He is the greatest technical boxer of all time, but IMO, in their primes, Jones, Leonard, and even De La Hoya (as I said, in his prime), were probably better than Mayweather overall. I'll give him this - Mayweather is definitely the most boring great boxer of all time.

I will never have any respect or give any credit to a guy who beat his wife, especially in front of their children.

Watching NFL Network. Just curious how the ESPN guys reacted to Bennett falling so far?

Comment 02 May 2015

Hundley's still there for the Bengals. That would be great, to push Dalton.

Comment 02 May 2015

Shocked that Bennett has lasted this long. Most have him a 2nd round grade.
